What Does FTP 123 Do?

FTP 123 makes it easy to download save files from an iSeries to a PC. The save file will be automatically compressed into a self-extracting zip file. Within the tool you also have the ability to email the compressed file to BCD Technical Support (excel@excelsystems.com).

FTP 123 also makes it easy to upload a save file to an iSeries.
